Perfect place to stay for a four generation wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Lori was helpful from the first correspondence to the last. The house was lovely and seemed to be only 20 minutes from anywhere we needed to go! She is extremely knowledgeable about Nashville and left great information on restaurants and shopping there. The well-appointed house had everything we needed for this very special family weekend. I highly recommend it to others!

A Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Our family group (my sister, her husband, their grown children and spouses, my husband and our grown son) were very impressed with The Blue Door as a vacation home away from home. The creative way it is decorated inspired us all. The location couldn't have been much more convenient for us, as the entertainment was in downtown Nashville, but our family wedding was in Columbia. I could probably write a book about how comfortable we all felt staying together in this home away from home and how much being together added to the enjoyment of our vacation, but suffice it to say...I would recommend it to others without hesitation. Everything, from reservation to check-in and check- out, including all communications in between was handled electronically with ease. All in all a great experience.

Love the decor of the house. Plenty of dishes for a group of twelve plus guests. Laura is easy to talk to and her recommendations on where to eat is right on. Only complaint is that we couldn't find a cutting board anywhere in the house. Lol

Thank you Laura for letting us use your house.

Owner's Response: Kim, I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Blue Door! I was at the house today and found two cutting boards buried underneath a large number of cookie sheets and muffin tins. We keep the 2 kitchens fully stocked, but sometimes things can get misplaced and we certainly would have taken this for you during your stay if we had known. Thank you for your patience and come stay with us again soon!

Laurie and the Blue Door are THE BEST!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Door was the perfect house for our girls weekend in Nashville (we were celebrating a few birthdays)! The house is HUGE and so beautifully decorated - our group of 15 girls had more than enough room in this spacious home (so many bedrooms and living areas!) and didn't feel overcrowded at all. We felt right at home the second we walked through the door! Laurie is also the sweetest!!! She was so helpful, always on-call to answer any questions and gave our group so many awesome suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. during our time in Nashville. We are so appreciative and can't thank her enough!! If you're coming to Nashville with a larger group, this is the place for you!

The Blue Door is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Our group of 11 felt at home immediately and did not want to leave.

The kids loved playing video games downstairs. The adults in our group enjoyed sitting around the gorgeous farm table and visiting with each other. Although the wireless service worked with no issues at all, we hardly used it! It was nice in this digital age to actually connect on a "human" level. My favorite part of the week was spent at that table eating and talking to each other!

The house is conveniently located to anything we needed as well as the "attractions" in the area, but out far enough that we were not surrounded by the city noise and hustle. We even had a deer come visit the back yard one afternoon!

I cannot express enough how much we loved the house! Laurie is an awesome host and thought of everything! She even left us a "welcome home" gift. Everyone should be lucky enough to spend some time at the Blue Door!

The Blue Door is located in the heart of West Nashville, minutes to downtown, upscale shopping in Green Hills and Belle Meade, the Warner Parks, greenways, and 12th South. Need some pampering? Escape Day Spa and Salon, voted 9 years in a row Nashville's Best Spa, is just a 5 minute drive. Do not miss the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, my favorite place for the WHOLE family, just 5 minutes away! We love to get a burger at The Sportsman's Grille, a great place to people watch in Belle Meade!
